Summer is in full swing, and that means county and state fair season is about to begin! In the coming weeks, fairgrounds in New York State will open their gates to fairgoers looking to fill their day with some classic summertime fun. There are plenty of fair options to choose from – eleven to be exact! – located near Amtrak stations.
Perhaps the grandest of all is the 12-DAY LONG Great New York State Fair, with an Amtrak stop located right on-site! In addition to traditional fair rides, food, and agricultural shows, this fair takes things a step further with big-name musical performers like Eric Church, Everclear, Melissa Etheridge, and Hank Williams, Jr.!
Visitors with kids can take advantage of one of Amtrak’s current discounts – One (1) free child’s rail fare to the Great New York State Fair with the purchase of one (1) regular adult, senior citizen, or disabled adult rail fare! Visit New York By Rail Discounts for more information.
Other fair favorites include Rhinebeck’s Dutchess County Fair, Altamont’s Altamont Fair, Plattsburgh’s Clinton County Fair, and Hamburg’s Erie County Fair. To discover more upcoming fairs in New York State, visit New York By Rail Events!
